SHOCK!!! PERSONAL MEDICAL RECORDS FOUND OPENLY DISCARDED OUTSIDE KANSAS CITY RESEARCH MEDICAL CENTER!!!



Here's a nasty look at how the medical industrial complex in Kansas City isn't really taking privacy seriously . . .

OR . . .

MEDICAL PRIVACY DIES @ KANSAS CITY RESEARCH MEDICAL CENTER!!!

Garrett Haake broke this story over @ KSHB: "One man made a horrifying discovery outside a KC hospital where hundreds of medical records were blowing in the wind."

Deets:

"A man driving in the neighborhood near 63rd and Prospect Avenue late Monday morning noticed several pink sheets of paper fluttering in the wind. He stopped to examine one and found it was a medical record from Midwest Women’s Healthcare Specialists. Tracing the pink sheets back towards the hospital, he discovered a crew dumping the papers into an open-topped dumpster on the hospital’s north side.

The wind carried many away, the observer said, and the trash crew continued . . ."

AT LEAST 70 PATIENT RECORDS WERE CLEARLY DISCOVERED WHICH CONTAINED PRIVATE MEDICAL DETAILS!!!

Example . . .

"Of the records examined by 41 Action News, most are of appointments made between August and September of 2011. All the patients are women. Their names, phone numbers, home addresses and social security numbers are clearly legible, as are the reasons for their visit."

This one is a shocker to everybody except those people who know a lot about Research and how so much corporate shifting hasn't improved patient care or much else @ the hospital.

That quack factory should be shut down by the government for this. Won't happen, of course. Big medicine pays big bucks to the ruling pols.

What would you expect at 63rd and Prospect ?

The good news is the Hood Rats are to lazy and too stupid to utilize any information that could be farmed from said "blowing records".

The reporter didn't break the story, the driver who stopped did. If this town still had good reporters they would have been dumpster diving years ago and finding this outrage and not waiting for luck, a strong wind and a curious driver.

We could give a shit less about reports of Sickle Cell Anemia wafting through the air in a free fire combat zone unfit for Western Civilization.

This is not the first time Research has had mass dumping of medical records. This is more than a small problem; it is a gross violaton of Federal law and regulations.
